As the year comes to an end, it's time for all those year wrap up lists and awards and such. In the category of Best Selling Vehicles for 2015, the Honda Civic has placed a respectable 5th place. Here is what Road and Track had to say of the popular sedan:

Sweet-handling and fun to drive, the Civic deserves serious consideration from enthusiasts and non-enthusiasts alike. The base engine is a 158-hp 2.0-liter four; a 174-hp turbo 1.5-liter is optional. Good news: The 2.0-liter has a six-speed manual! (A CVT is optional.) Bad news: The turbo offers only the CVT. Both engines make enjoyable companions, but the turbo is definitely the hot rod of the two.
Over the course of the year the Civic sold 277,538 units. Keep in mind that for most of the year it was the 9th generation Civic, so sales should see a substantial boost in 2016 with a brand new version being on sale.

Here are the other vehicles that made the list.

1. Toyota Camry (361,111 sold)
2. Toyota Corolla (306,693 sold)
3. Honda Accord (294,935 sold)
4. Nissan Altima (283,372 sold)
5. Honda Civic (277,538 sold)
6. Ford Fusion (255,143 sold)
7. Hyundai Elantra (209,830 sold)
8. Chevrolet Cruze (193,680)
9. Ford Focus (180,287 sold)
10. Hyundai Sonata (173,751 sold)

Can't fault the Toyota Camry for making it to number 1. Those cars are built like tanks. Can't wait to see next year's numbers when the rest of the Civic lineup comes out.

I'm actually most curious what the Civic is going to do in December. Maybe poorer because lack of year end incentives like rivals?

They do have incentives, just not for the new civic models. Are the other brands giving out year end incentives for new models?

December will still be too early to see how the new Civic is selling, as of right now in the US according to cars.com there are 24,539 2015 Civics available. There are only 16,971 2016 Civics on the lots and we all know dealers put up cars as soon as they know they are coming so there are less on the ground I expect.

We need to let the 15's flush out for another few months before we see how the 16's are really doing. Not that I expect them to do bad by any means, just that numbers not not quite accurate so far anyway. I've personally still never even seen a turbo model and I've checked at 5 dealerships so I know 16 inventory is still very light.

They get a lot of fleet sales for taxi companies and that's something which should factor in for a good part of those numbers. If you compare individual ownership of the Camry to Civic... I think Civic might be higher.

Seems like they should have numbers somewhere that separate the 2015 models from the 2016 models.
